    Default Techy Question re: msn messenger

    Hi guys. Anyone know how you can have two msn messengers running? I use two hotmail accounts and wondered if I could have messenger running for both of them at once?

    Perhaps its a simple as just downloading it again???

    No m8 - no can do (well, not easily anyway - there 'may' be some sort of 'hack' that will do it?)

    easy peezy.... well, sort of.
    windows will not let you run 2 msn messengers.
    however, it will let you run MSN Messenger and then run Windows Messenger. (they are two different programs)
    the only problem you may stumble across is is a compatability issue between your version of windows messenger and windows.

    when you first run windows messenger and it asks you if you would like to setup a new .net account etc just use your current details and on the 3rd screen (i think) when it asks for your email and password there's a little tick box below.... it says something like 'sync windows messenger with your windows user account'
    un-tick that box and hit next.
    you should be ok that way.

    P.S. - they may not always work, it seems to be a bit iffy... as it works on my PC but not on my laptop...

    oh... failing that. download a copy of a program like trillian (as suggested above) use that for one account and msn messenger for your other.

    I was initially going to suggest that as that would have let Rob have two different messenger windows. But I think he wants to get notification of new e-mail in both hotmail accounts which, iirc, Windows Messenger doesn't do?

    Will write it like this then .... its http://www.msgshi t.com/downloads/cat/Multiple%20MSN

    Copy the whole link and remove the space between the "i" and "t" in the word youre not allowed to write ...
